THE BATMAN is supposed to emphasize the detective aspect of Batman, but it doesn’t really show in the trailer. I really hope that turns out to be the case, because otherwise, I don’t need to see a remake of the Nolan movies.

A friend described Patterson`s Bruce Wayne as looking
like Emo Peter Parker.

I don't know if it's maybe an autocorrect thing, but his
name is "Pattinson".

Didn't recognize Pattinson - when I first saw him I thought it was whoever was playing the Riddler.

Urggh.

This tends to reinforce the notion that any small diversion from what is on-model will tend to cause further divergence down the line. For example, Alfred who previously spoke with received pronunciation has now become a kind of mockney in multiple iterations.

We never get away from the tale being an origin story. And Riddler is some kind of macabre serial killer.

Another psychotic Batman. How original. Another armored costume. How original. Another dark scene with flashing cuts during the fighting so we can't see any of it. How original. Another Catwoman villain/romance subplot. How original.

It looks like someone is starting the Batman story all over - AGAIN - and as usual, they made the second movie in the series first. The origin, the reasons, the "coming of bat-age", etc. 

Maybe someday, they can find a director who does a movie about Batman from the good ol' days. The World's Greatest Detective. The World's Greatest Escape Artist. The World's Greatest Disguise Artist. The hero who takes advantage of a superstitious, cowardly lot - but isn't trying to terrorize EVERYONE. The guy who's willing to help bunch of kids play baseball by umping a dirt field game. The hero who actually knows the police, and isn't feared and hated by most of them. The one who knows Gotham City so well that he can tell where some lug is running there before the lug does (and we've all seen that O'Neil/Adams page, I think.)

The one who engenders this: "Sorry, Penguin, but we're sticking with McGinty's mob." "Boosting tires? You FOOLS! You'll make 100 times more working as my gang!" "Yeah, maybe... until the Bat gets you. An' he always gets you!"

No, I don't want Batman going to foreign worlds, or fighting cavemen. But I don't want an on-the-edge Batman who's always a nickel short of a nervous breakdown either.

LIGHTS for God's sake! Not every single thing in a shadowy warehouse, a shadowy night club, a shadowy church, a shadowy mansion. Don't obscure everything.

Well, so much for my fantasy today. Hell, if they start with the 1966 Batman movie as a guide, I'd be happy.

I don't really like that 60s Batman either. I'd like to see a Batman movie where he's more like the 70s and 80s comics, before they turned him into Iron Man meets The Punisher. I think that would be an interesting middle-of-the-road approach.

I think the key to the trailer is that the Riddler is now a psychotic killer. I guess that's the next step, to remake the entire rogues gallery into Silence of the Lambs level wackos. And have the Batman go suitably mad himself.

Arkham Asylum was exactly that and it came out 30+ years ago. 

Not getting into a discussion if that's good or bad (for reasons of brevity) but it seems unfair to "blame it on Hollywood".
